A CHARITY ball to raise money at Haynes Motor Museum in Sparkford will have a 1920s theme.

Staff from Higos Insurance Services are raising funds for the Prince's Trust by hosting the ball on Saturday, November 10.

Popular local jazz band Grey Dogs will provide entertainment on the night when 1920s style cocktails will be flowing.

Guests will have the opportunity to have a photograph taken with a choice of classic cars from the era, as well as access to other exhibits within the museum.

Tickets cost £45, which includes a champagne reception, three-course meal and entertainment. There will also be a charity auction and raffle and Rupert Cox, chief executive of Somerset Chamber of Commerce, has again agreed to act as auctioneer. Lots include an iPad and a designer handbag.

The Charity Ball is in aid of The Prince's Trust Million Makers Challenge. A team of Higos staff are taking the challenge and organising a number of events with the aim of raising £10,000 for the charity in the next six months.

Million Makers is a national competition which challenges teams of employees to raise £1m.

For tickets, contact Emily Wright on 01749 834562 or 01458 448631 or e-mail at emily.wright@higos.co.uk.
